    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J. Crew (New York, NY).

    Interview

    DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

    I had a phone screening that I thought went really well. I sent a thank you email and several follow up emails in the following weeks. Completely ghosted. I had to find out my application was no longer being considered by checking the status on JCrew Talent. Extremely disappointing considering I worked for the company for over a year. Rude and disrespectful.
